Reminder from the rain

Sometimes God works in mysterious ways. I woke up this morning to dark clouds, rain, lots of wind, and cold weather. It wasn't exactly a storm, but it kind of made me want a storm. I miss a good thunderstorm. I can't even remember the last time I heard thunder. Utah is not fulfilling my need for the occassional thunderstorm. Just last night I was thinking about how sad I am that the semester is coming to an end, and then today Heavenly Father reminded me of something I will get when I go home for the summer: RAIN. Storms. It's funny how crappy weather can brighten your day if you let it.

On the way to my 8 o'clock class I tried to use my umbrella. Bad idea. It was entirely too windy. I thought I was going to blow away! Halfway to class I decided fighting the wind wasn't worth it and put my umbrella down and walked in the rain (it wasn't raining hard). Even without the umbrella I had to push against the wind. It was pretty insane. Oh Utah weather. Later on the rain turned into snow. None of it stuck, but it was definitely snowing. When I was walking home from  work it was more like sleet. Rain, sleet, and snow all in one day. Good job, Utah.

Today was pretty busy. I had classes then work. Work was really busy. We're getting ready for end of the semester check-outs plus there was a lot of mail. Bonus to helping with the mail: we recycle all the magazines that are presorted standard if the resident no longer lives here. Well, the Delias magazines had some coupons so I rescued a couple from the recycling bin because I found a super cute swimsuit I want from there and now it will be pretty inexpensive! Score! P.S. Mom, when I decide to order the swimsuit I'm just going to ship it to Louisiana so I don't have to pack it home. So if you get a package for me, that's what it is. But I probably won't order it for a few weeks.

After work I did laundry and homework. I have so much homework. I guess it's just that time of the semester. I didn't even go to dinner. That's how busy I was. Yes, I ate dinner. In my room. I just didn't go to the Cannon and have my usual social hour(s) for dinner. I only went to FHE for a wee bit, too. I'm just swamped. Eventually my homework made me veryyyy sleepy. It tends to do that to me. I rewarded myself for being productive all day by watching Once Upon a Time since doing homework when you can barely keep your eyes open is a little pointless. Now I'm going to go to bed early. But don't worry, I'll make up for it by waking up a little early tomorrow morning.

BIG EXCITING NEWS: I get to go to the Saturday afternoon session of General Conference!!! I am super excited. Bethany invited me to go with her and Derek since they had an extra ticket. I was worried I wouldn't be able to get anyone to cover my shift, but one of my lovely co-workers said she would cover me :) This is the first time I've really been looking forward to Conference with a question in mind. I've really been trying to prepare myself for General Conference this time and now I get to attend a session in person. Blessing? I think so.

Oh man, now I got myself all pumped up. I was so tired and now I'm all excited. Maybe I'll do a little more homework, haha.
